Updated on April 15: By now, most of us would have heard of the new stricter Circuit Breaker and safe distancing measures (here’s what you can and cannot do) announced by the Multi-Ministry Taskforce last Friday (April 3), to curb the spread of Covid-19.
Non-essential workplaces are to close, schools are to shift entirely to home-based e-learning, and people are discouraged from coming into contact with anyone besides their immediate family.
With these stricter measures in place, dining out has become a no-no, and if you’re desperately craving a meal that isn’t instant noodles… we’ve got you.
From local delights to cocktails and Michelin-starred restaurants, we’ve compiled a list of establishments offering delivery or takeaway services so you can enjoy a hearty, delicious, and most importantly, socially-distant feast from comfort and safety of your home.
Besides, it’s a great way to support Singapore’s food and beverage industry, which has taken a hard hit, during these trying times.
For the very first time, one Michelin-starred Vianney Massot Restaurant is offering a L’Agneau de lait takeaway set. Perfect for those who have an anniversary coming up, a birthday approaching, or simply want to up the ante for stay-home date night.
The curated set features milk-fed lamb legs from Pyrenees, pan-seared then slow-roasted to juicy perfection. Al dente and fragrant pilaf rice accompanies the meat, as well as a basket of mini croissants and baguettes, all freshly made to ensure maximum crustiness and fluffiness.
The set caters to four to five pax, and goes at $200++. If you want to up the indulgence, order an additional tarte aux fraises (a sweet strawberry tart dessert) and a bottle of red wine.
Contact +65 6909 6360 or email email@example.com one day in advance to order. Delivery fee applies.
The one-Michelin star restaurant, which offers Asian-influenced modern European cuisine, will be premiering its takeaway lunchbox sets. They are available lunchtime, every Tuesday to Thursday, at $29+ per set.
Rest assured you’re munching for a good cause – 10 per cent of revenue from every order of the lunchbox set is donated to the National University Hospital. (The restaurant has also committed to delivering 50 lunchboxes to NUH twice a week, for eight weeks. NUH is its chosen beneficiary because that was where Chef Haikal Johari recovered, following his motorbike accident back in 2015.)
Each day brings a different menu: Tuesdays serve the Angus Beef Burger, Wednesdays offer the Country Sourdough Sandwich, and on Thursdays you get the classic Rye Sourdough Reuben Sandwich. All sets come with sides of chips and salad.
Act quickly though, because the lunchboxes are limited to 50 sets per day.
Enjoy your fave Singaporean Nonya and Peranakan flavours with Violet Oon Singapore’s new à la carte takeaway menus.
You can dapau local favourites exclusive to each Violet Oon restaurant, such as the satay from Violet Oon Satay Bar & Grill, and the Pepper Prawn Pasta from Violet Oon Singapore at ION Orchard.
The takeaway menus are available at Violet Oon Singapore at ION Orchard, Violet Oon Singapore at Bukit Timah, Violet Oon Satay Bar & Grill, and Violet Oon Singapore at Jewel Changi Airport.
To place a takeaway order, call +65 9834 9935 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Orders may be picked up 30 minutes from order confirmation during lunch and dinner service hours.
For the booze lovers whose hearts broke when the bars closed – this one’s for you.
Shin Gi Tai bar is offering a selection of handcrafted bottled cocktails carefully curated by their team of bartenders for takeaway or delivery, so you don’t have to go cold turkey on your fave Negronis and Manhattans.
As a guide, their 300ml bottle is equivalent to around 4 cocktails and their 500ml bottle is equivalent to around 7 cocktails.
Their range of cocktails come stirred or shaken, and includes classics such as Negronis, Manhattans and Sidecars or Premium cocktails. If none of those concoctions tickle your fancy, Shin Gi Tai’s bartenders are also available to create bespoke cocktails upon request.

Four Seasons Hotel is offering a 20 per cent discount. Diners can also go for a bundle set, at $38 for two courses and $46 for three, from its One-Ninety Restaurant. The sets come with dishes such as wagyu beef burger, roasted seabass and laksa. The wagyu burger alone would have cost $42 a la carte.
Putien, whose flagship in Kitchener Road has one Michelin star, has been giving 20 per cent off for takeaway deals that include set meals and some a la carte items. The promotion goes on till the end of the year.
Putien’s delivery radius is limited as it serves only areas in the vicinity of each of its 13 outlets.
The Goodwood Park Hotel has its own call centre. Customers can also order via its website. The food is delivered by the hotel’s drivers.
The hotel has closed L’Espresso cafe and the fine-dining Gordon Grill until May 4, but is taking orders for all its other restaurants, including Chinese restaurant Min Jiang at Dempsey.
At Pan Pacific Singapore, an existing e-commerce platform for Pacific Market Place, created to sell its house-made sausages, also now takes orders for islandwide food delivery from Japanese restaurant Keyaki and Cantonese restaurant Hai Tien Lo. The delivery charge of $20 is waived for orders of at least $100.
Grand Hyatt has also created $10 takeaway meals called “Meal in a Box, Wellness on the Go”, but delivers only within a 4km radius and with a minimum of 20 orders.
The Cicheti Group, which owns casual Italian restaurants, not only uses delivery platforms such as Oddle, Deliveroo, Grab and Foodpanda, but has also launched its own system online and through WhatsApp. It charges a flat $10 delivery fee. It has also tweaked some of its offerings to make them suitable for delayed consumption.
Ms Liling Ong, a partner of the group, says: “Most of our pastas at Bar Cicheti are cooked a la minute and meant to be enjoyed immediately. Transporting them would alter their texture and taste.
“Our solution was to create DIY pasta kits comprising fresh, hand-made pasta and a sauce of your choice packed separately. You heat them up together.”
The two-Michelin-starred restaurant in One Fullerton is closed for a month, but chef-owner Emmanuel Stroobant and his wife, Ms Edina Hong, came up with an omakase bento box comprising eight items plus cheeses and desserts for home delivery.
The bento is delivered by the restaurant’s staff in full uniform, who return in the morning to collect the box. Everything is eaten chilled and the food features premium Japanese ingredients such as kinmedai, hamachi and Omi beef.
To spice things up, diners can enjoy the meal virtually with friends and family in other homes through the Zoom video meeting app.
Everyone logs in at an appointed time and Stroobant appears at the start to introduce the dishes.
But as the restaurant needs an order of 15 to 30 boxes and at $180 or $220 a person, it is a hefty bill.
Farm-to-table restaurant, Open Farm Community, has launched OFC Provisions, a resilience grocery aimed at reducing food waste and supporting local farms. From DIY kits to pickles, and fresh food boxes, OFC Provision features produce from OFC’s local farm partners, as well as those harvested from OFC’s garden.
